Very hard... but also quite ambiguous. What about Jersey? Guernsey? Anglesey? All are off shore... perhaps needs rewording :)

Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man are Crown Dependencies, not overseas territories. And Anglesey is just an island off the coast of Wales - part of Wales. Overseas Territories is the official term, as stated on the UK Government website - www.direct.gov.uk :)

Jersey, Guernsey and Anglesey are not British Overseas Territories—they are part of the Channel Islands, which is (along with the Isle of Man) a Crown Dependency. Those islands you mentioned are only the main islands of the Channel Islands; there are more than just three.

7/14 > 88%- not bad for guy from Connecticut. I almost put Antarctica down, but I thought it was declared officially unclaimed by any nations.

Maudland is still 'unoccupied' I think, but it's been a long time since I last researched Antarctica. USA, Russia and a few others have claim to it and the right to scratch around on it but the rest of the continent is taken with Australia having the largest portion.

Thought of Chagos Archipelago, but didn't know the official name for the territory. Maybe that can be considered an acceptable answer?

British Antarctic Territory is just an unrecognised claim as per the international Antarctica Treaty. I don't think it should be included.

So pleased I got 100% on my first try - learned about these on a YouTube video a few years ago and it seems they got stuck in my head. Some of them have interesting/controversial/tragic stories..... Like the abuse scandal in Pitcairn, the volcano which destroyed 60% of Montserrat, or the fact that the Falklands War actually started because Argentina invaded South Georgia, not the Falkland Islands
